Just a quick caution. Avid will not work on mites! I've used it for years in the winter on my greenhouse hibiscus. It protects against aphids, white flies and other chewing/sucking insects. But it has no affect on mites (that's true for a lot of insecticides) and if anything, makes the spider mite problem worse, at least in the greenhouse.
